“We were up to our ears in stress in a home with three uncontrollable dogs. We were at the point where we were considering rehoming one or two of them, which was an extremely painful scenario to consider. Kristen & Mike talked us through all of our issues, gave us realistic expectations and put loads of time and energy into training the pups and us! Today, we have one of the most peaceful animal homes in town, you would barely know we had not one, but three dogs here! They gave us the tools necessary to communicate with them and gain their respect. Most importantly they kept our family together and this to us is absolutely priceless. ”
“When I met Kristen I had a reactive dog. Walking on a leash was not fun. After a few short weeks my dog walks in a perfect heel. With the introduction on place commands and crate she has enormous impulse control. I cannot say enough about Kristen and the tools she has given me to train my dog. THANK YOU KRISTEN!”
Promote clear communication between you and your dog. A solid relationship with your dog starts with basic fundamentals. We teach on-leash core commands including:
Threshold of Open Doors
Duration on Place to Teach Calm Behavior
Are you looking to have your dog trained off-leash? Trusting your dog off-leash has so many benefits. It helps tremendously with:
- Exercise because your dog won’t have to be confined to a leash
Trusting your dog more
- Socializing with other dogs
- Safety for your dog and other humans and animals
Knowing that your dog is always going to come when called is such an amazing feeling. We will help you work on your dog’s recall in numerous different distractions ranging from people and environments to lots of other dogs. All of our off-leash dogs will be proofed in an off-leash dog park as training progresses.
Advanced Off-Leash Heel
Down, stay and place command
We have trained thousands of dogs off-leash of all breeds. Any dog can get trained off leash with a 100% recall, even huskies, hounds and wolf hybrids. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to let you dog off leash and not have to worry about him running away? It may be time for you to invest in our Off Leash Training Program.
In this program, your dog is dropped off daily (M – F at 10:00 AM) to spend the day with us. We take them through the Ultimate Obedience program (outlined above). They are picked up at the end of the day between 5-6 PM and spend the night and weekends with you. This program:
- Gives you instructions and homework for you to do with your dog in the evenings and on weekends
- Helps you to transfer skills learned in day training in your day-to-day life
- Is about 4-6 weeks in length, but can vary depending on your dog
- Enrollment is not open to everyone – we have to evaluate your dog beforehand
Once day training is complete, you can continue training in privates or attend group classes to continue to work on your dog’s obedience and social skills.
“I will be a lifelong customer here. I can’t recommend enough. Kristen, Mike, Vic and Deb have completely transformed my demon dogs!!! I can not stress enough how amazing this team is.”
We have one of the most extensive training programs in North America for training and for the rehabilitation of aggression in dogs. Regardless of the type of breed or aggression issue, we have worked with thousands of dogs around the world with very high rates of success.
Have you ever been kicked out of an obedience class because your dog was barking aggressively at other dogs? Do you avoid dog parks because your dog will bite other dogs? Do you avoid having people over to your house because your dog makes it difficult to enjoy your company? Maybe you have been to several other trainers who claimed they could help you and were not able to? If this is you and your dog, click the button below to continue reading about our program.
